In yet another impromptu press conference delivered moments ago, French presidential contender Francois Fillon addressed the nation, and contrary to expectations the embattled candidate, fighting an escalating corruption probe, would announce he would drop out of the race, Fillon vowed to fight on, even as he revealed that judges planned to charge him with misuse of public funds.
Fillon confirmed that he was summoned to court on March 15 after earlier on Wednesday being questioned by magistrates investigating a ‘fake work’ scandal involving his wife. The summons prompted Fillon to cancell a campaign appearance at Paris’s farm show, triggering speculation he was preparing to pull out of the race. But at a press conference later in the morning, Fillon angrily denounced the investigation into the jobs affair, saying the probe was a challenge to the democratic process.
Fillon blasted the ongoing judicial inquiry as an attempt of “political assassination” directed at him. Having pleaded not guilty in the case of employment of his family members, Fillon will now have to prove it in court.
“I won’t give in, I won’t surrender, I won’t withdraw, I’ll fight to the end,” Fillon said ending his speech
Earlier, French media reported that Fillon’s presidential campaign director Patrick Stefanini had offered his resignation. There has been no confirmation yet.
